A comment from a recent visitor to Mescal:  “Just wanted to drop you a line and let you know how very, very much we enjoyed the tour at Mescal!  Our guide was absolutely wonderful. He knew so much about a wide range of very old, semi-old, and newer westerns. We were so delighted – it is hard to find the words! We had a wonderful time. He talked about the buildings, the scenes, the camera angles, buildings with just fronts, and the first four-sided complete building that we looked at.  In and out and around with wonderful explanations!  It was just great.  I hope you tell him how much we enjoyed the tour, every minute of it and hopefully, we will get a chance to return.”
